Vitamized Fat Melting
Vitamin D
How It Melts Fat: Study after study shows that vitamin D helps to ensure body cells listen and respond to insulin, a hormone secreted from your pancreas. One of its jobs is to help glucose get into body cells, which burn glucose for energy. How well insulin pushes glucose into cells is called "insulin sensitivity." The more sensitive your cells are to insulin, the better. The less sensitive they are to insulin, the more likely the calories you eat will end up in your fat cells.

When levels of D are low, levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) rise. Higher than normal levels of PTH trigger a series of reactions that eventually lead to fat cells converting sugar into fat and hoarding fat rather than releasing it to be burned, explains Michael B. Zemel, PhD, director of the Nutrition Institute at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.

A lack of vitamin D may also interfere with leptin, a hormone that signals your brain to stop eating. Your body doesn't know when it's full, so you continue to eat.

Vitamin D weight loss success is allegedly the result of the increased levels of vitamin D along with a low-calorie diet. This assumption is based on a study conducted by nutritionists and weight loss experts who attempted to determine whether or not the baseline levels of Vitamin D before calorie restriction affect weight loss and whether or not an increase in the Vitamin D level can really lead to Vitamin D weight loss.

The authors of this study used 38 overweight to obese men and women to measure the circulating blood levels of Vitamin D before and after the participants followed a low-calorie diet plan for 12 weeks. The participants took only 750 calories a day much fewer than the estimated total needs of the body. The authors also measured the participants' fat distribution using DXA or bone densitometry scans. The result showed that there is indeed an underlying connection between Vitamin D and losing weight.
